Delightful Daisy

Standard

Hello

I haven’t made an MDF heart for a while, so I thought I would share this recently made one with you today.

I have covered the mdf with a coat of white gesso, then used chalk paint in heritage (orange) and delicate (yellow) I stamped a floral image with versamark and used fine clear embossing powder. I went around the edges and over the embossing with a little distress ink in scattered straw.

Using 160gsm white card, I stamped and die cut the delightful Daisy from Heartfelt creations.

On the leaves I have used distress ink in peeled paint, crushed olive and mustard seed, for the flowers I used Spiced marmalade and mustard seed.

I shaped the flowers and layered them up finishing with a gem in the centre.

I stamped the sentiment Dream Forever (from Stampendous) in black versafine ink and used clear embossing powder.

To finish off I glued the flowers in place and added some small eyelets to my drilled holes.

Threaded with brown string and wooden beads, I used promarkers to colour the beads.

Hope you like this one

Hello crafty visitors

Today I am sharing two cards I made a while ago at Eileen Godwin’s workshop.

I have used distress inks to colour the background, then stamped the image with versamark and used white embossing powder.

Then I coloured the flowers and leaves using distress ink and a brush.

thanks for taking a peek

enjoy your day

Hello lovely crafters

Did you miss me lol

The time seems to have flown by this year, after making the card on my last post I took a little break. I have been doing an NVQ at work but have finally finished my theory. I have been taking spanish lessons for almost a year now, (love the language) so that has taken up a fair amount of time.

I’ve also been feeling really tired and then seemed to have lost my mojo, like you do sometimes. Also been told I am borderline type two diabetic, so maybe that’s why I feel tired, I don’t know.

So to get my mojo back I have been going to some workshops run by some very lovely ladies Eileen Godwin and Sally Newick. I will share some of the makes with you soon. I’ve started scrap booking, only made a few pages but this is new for me. I will be making the invitations for my daughter’s wedding, so I have bought a laser printer and a hot foil machine, yet to have a proper play with that, will let you know how it goes!

Back in March however I did manage to make some tags for mother’s day, using grey board, 6×6 papers or scrap bits, ribbons and embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by

Happy crafting
